Kistler Model 8778A500 Ceramic Shear Accelerometer

Kistler, Model, 8778A500, Ceramic Shear Accelerometer The Kistler 8778A500 and the Kistler 8778A500M14 are high frequency, ultra miniature, light weight accelerometers with built-in electronics, providing a low impedance voltage output. Integrated Electronic PiezoElectric (IEPE) sensor electronics minimize cable noise and eliminates the need for highly insulated cables. The standard 8778A500 accelerometer includes an integral Teflon jacketed 3 ft. (0.9 m) long cable terminated with a 10-32 neg. connector while the M14 version features a field replaceable twisted wire pair and connector.

Contained within the titanium housing is a piezo-ceramic sensing element oriented in a shear mode configuration that provides immunity to base bending and thermal influences. The unit is designed for wax or adhesive mounting and is supplied with a custom wrench to facilitate removal after testing. Power to the 8778A accelerometers can be provided by any Kistler 5100 series coupler or by any industry standard voltage mode piezo-electric power supply/coupler.
